Gabriella Boone for Miss Missouri Teen Usa
Organized by: Gabrielle Boone
My name is Gabrielle Boone and I was blessed enough to be accepted as a contestant for this year's Miss Missouri Teen USA. Iam sixteen and as some of you might know I'm in foster care. The donations will be used to help assist me in this year's pageant.The pageant will be in September 2016. If you can help me with these donations by August 27th 2016 I would appreciate it very much. This has been a dream for me since the age of six. When I was younger, I used to have very low self-esteem. I have struggled for years with self mutilation and suicidal ideations, and have even attempted suicide multiple times. I had a very unhappy life, battling abuse of many forms. Part of my dream is to empower other kids of all ages, and to show the world that you can be better than the examples that are set for you. I want to show kids that no matter your circumstance, you can always fight for your dreams. I was able to overcome the oppressors that told me I would never be beautiful, smart, or successful. I want to use this opportunity to show kids in similar situations that they can do the same. If you could help me in achieving my dream, I would be forever and immensely grateful!
